Mirror question

I know this question has been posted before, but I was finally able to remove my doors, and I need the most simple and cheapest solution to having a sideview mirror.

By the way, my doors were stuck, like others that I read about on here. I just sprayed some Blaster in the hinges and kept working them and they came off.

Thanks for any input on the mirror question.

The cheapest way is to buy a set of motorcycle mirrors. Just slide the stem into your door hinges. Make sure that the stems are long enough to put a nut on the bottom.

As said above. Buddy of mine uses the mirror off of his moped. It's small but it's a mirror, that makes it legal.

Not if adjusted right.

Wyoming requires a mirror on the drivers side. I will be here through the summer working. Can you get the motorcycle mirrors at an autoparts store?

Go to your local dirt bike shop, ask for a dual sport mirror.
I use mine off my 09' KLX 250 and it fits perfectly!

I currently use a pair of these:

Amazon.com: K Source CL062E 4 1/2" x 6" Clamp-on Spot Mirror w/8" Extension Stainless Steel: Automotive

Just bent the bracket a bit, found long bolts and nut with washers to attach it to the hinges and all done

I got these last year: Amazon.com: Rugged Ridge 11025.02 Black Mirror Relocation Bracket - Pair: Automotive

Cost me $22, now at $26 (plus $10 S&H - boo)

I moved the mirrors last spring when the hard top came off, then last fall I relocated the mirrors back to the doors for the winter. This spring I moved the mirrors again, and so on. Passenger-side view is slightly obstructed with the hard doors on (maybe 40%), but I can see almost all of the mirror with the doors off. Drivers-side is completely unobstructed.

I drove with no doors one summer years ago (96, maybe?), but technically you can get pulled over and ticketed for not having mirrors - it's a 'primary offence'. I figure $30-$40 bucks is worth it to avoid giving them a reason to pull me over, and I suppose it does make a little bit safer to drive.

Also, I think the Jeep looks funny without mirrors - like a head with no ears.
